Hundreds attended the funeral procession of Dale’s Towing truck driver Jennifer Lynn Williams.

At least 62 different towing companies from all over the Triad showed up to support Williams and her fiancé Johnny Manring, who also works at Dale’s Towing.

“The drivers still left will take it from here, but she’ll be in heaven keeping the golden highways clear and her tow truck in heaven,” Manring said.

Friends and loved ones signed a banner in her honor at Dale’s Towing that read “Assignment complete.”

Drivers urged others to pay close attention to the “Move Over” state law that requires everyone to shift lanes and slow down for all emergency vehicles and trucks.

Williams was struck and killed Tuesday night on US 220 in Stoneville while loading a car to her truck.

Authorities said Williams was not at fault in the wreck, as the driver did not move over.

Manring described Williams as a great mother and fiancé. The two were planning to get married in October.
